The Causey Special was conceived, and commissioned by Dave & Dean Causey. Two brothers from Indianapolis who were active in SCCA racing, competing in production . and both sports car and Can Am racing. Three chassis were built by Competition Motorsport of Chicago. Of the three, this car was the only Porsche powered car. The other two originally had 4 cylinder Ford's. Presently, one other Causey is racing in the European historic racing circuit. The third car is unaccounted for.
Both Dean & Dave drove this car in numerous SCCA races. I acquired the car after seeing the photos of the car racing in the 60's. I fell in love with it's appearance. It was in a dis-assembled state, and in need of a ground up restoration. The original chassis builder, Al Bourle, was extremely supportive in the process, remanufacturing components of the original car, along with giving our team the original blueprints and drawings. It was a 3 year labor of love project, thus allowing the car to rejoin the racing circuit in 1997. It has been in Kaske's Classic Car's possession since.
This Causey has won numerous class and overall wins in VSCDA and SVRA racing. It was featured at the SCCA races in "SCCA Legends" races, and the winner at the Can Am Cup, and also a class win in the Historic Can Am series "Tube frame small block " class. While this car had never been part of the Can Am grid, it has been invited a number of times to run with that group. This is due to the history with the Causey brothers, who ran a McLaren in that series.
